Poros is the perfect destination if you want that laidback island feeling without any long boat journey, it’s as close as to the mainland as an island can be but feels like it’s in the middle of the Mediterranean. The fertile volcanic soil allows you to sniff the scent of pine trees and taste its delicious local lemons, both a perfect accompaniment to napping under one of the olive trees on the sandy beach.

Day 1 – Glamping at Poros

Arrive on the shores of Galatas and find your unique glamping spot hidden between the olive trees. Your bell tent is perfectly nestled right in the middle of nature and well equipped, with electricity, WiFi, a refrigerator and a private shower/toilet unit just 50 meters from your tent. Only a few steps from the opening of your tent and you are on the beach where boats sail past. Find a nice spot on the terrace or by the pool to sit back and relax. The ferry to volcanic island of Poros is just around the corner and they run throughout the day. Within fifteen minutes, you’ll be on the island.

Days 2-3 – Explore Poros & surroundings

For the next days you will simply enjoy Poros and the area around it. Even though Poros is a small car-free island, there is a lot to do! The bays on the west side of the island are quiet and a great place to do unwind and relax. People also come from all over the world to paddle among Poros’ infamous rock formations. If you’d prefer to stay dry on land, Poros town had many terraces, shops and architecture that makes it a wonderful place to stroll around. You can also drive inland to the amphitheater in Epidaurus, the historic Mycenae and the cosy harbor town of Nafplion, where you can stroll between the characteristic houses with a delicious fresh ice cream in hand.
